Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Amazing pediatric neurosurgeon. On our first visit to him he worked wonders. when my son was experiencing bad headaches from his shunt and other neurosurgeons didnt seem to have a concern Dr. Kanev had him in for surgery the next morning. 7 years later and his headaches have not returned. We cant thank him enough for all he does and his dedication to his patients.
